Is there an easy way to play a Voice Memo (previously recorded, using the iPhone's app) during a phone call so that the person on the other end of the line can listen to it? This is an iPhone 4. [more inside]

Are there any iPhone 4 cases that feature Han Solo frozen in carbonite that are sculpted/3d, and not printed?
The only one I've managed to find is this
, which seems a little dicey.

I live in London and will soon be travelling to Melbourne, Australia. I have an iPhone 4 and a contract with Three UK; this week I paid Three fifteen quid to unlock my phone so that I can use a local sim when I'm abroad.
Three sent me a text telling me my unlock request has been processed, and to finish the unlocking process I need to insert a non-Three sim card and connect the device to iTunes. I don't have another sim card and am not sure where I can get one before I catch my plane on Saturday. Help? [more inside]

I have an iPhone 4. It is not jail broken or anything and I have no plans to do so. Is the upgrade to ios6 worth it? I understand that applemaps is pretty awful, and I'm not sure if the rest of ios6 is worth the loss of google maps. If you have ios6, what else does it do? [more inside]

I'm looking to replace the back glass panel of my iPhone 4. The options seem to be cheap ($2-$10) options from
Amazon, or $80 from iFixIt.
I'm mostly interested in the quality of the glass covering the lens. Mine is tremendously scratched, rendering my camera useless. I'd prefer to not pay $80, but I also don't trust the $2 knock-offs from Amazon. I've heard that the cheap ones have very crappy lens coverings - essentially just plastic wrap, not clear glass at all. Any advice on getting a quality rear backing at a decent price?

iPad owners: I'm considering getting an iPad 2. I currently own an iPhone 4, though, and I'm worried that using it is going to be like using an iPhone 3G—the screens on those, which once seemed fine to me, now seem ridiculously grainy. Yes, I know I'm spoiled. But will this mess with my enjoyment of the device? Or is stuff/text generally larger on iPad apps, such that it won't be as noticeable?

I have to shoot a quick, five-minute video that's basically a vlog: just me talking into the camera. To film it, I can use either a built-in iSight camera on a 2008 pre-unibody MacBook Pro, or an iPhone 4. Which one would be the better choice? Yeah, I'm aware it's not going to look cinematic with either one, but I want to look as decent as I can within reason. [more inside]

I want an iPhone app that will allow me to get back to where I've been using the GPS, Compass and (optionally) mapping software. Essentially, I would bookmark places I want to return to. Then, to get back to them, I can just open the app, hit the bookmark and it tells me which direction to travel and how far to go. [more inside]

My wife wants to get an iPhone, and is currently on Verizon. I already have one. What's the best route for us to go? If she gets an iPhone4, can I take it and give her the 3GS just by swapping the SIM cards? What is your experience with AT&Ts family plans, or are we better off having separate accts? Does ordering the phone online make anything more difficult? [more inside]

For people with the new iPhone 4, who previously had experience with the iPhone 3GS. How do you find the iPhone 4 stacks up against the 3GS in the area of signal reception? Is the iPhone 4 better or worse at obtaining and maintaining a cellular signal? [more inside]
